Kris Kristofferson has just announced a date at the Olympia Theatre, Dublin on January 25.

“Nothing could kill me,” he says, recalling his 1960s days in Nashville, “I was rolling cars and wrecking motorcycles, drinking and doing everything I could to die early. But it didn’t work.”

Kristofferson is 76 now and on his 28th album, the aptly titled Feeling Mortal.  Feeling Mortal follows 2009’s Closer To The Bone and 2006’s This Old Road in examining hard-won grace.

Kristofferson did not always imagine this would be so. “If I look like a mean old man, that’s what I am,” he sang, back when he was sometimes a mean-feeling younger man. But now he’s mostly truthful and thankful, as he sings, “For the laughter and the loving/ That I’m living with today.”

Tickets from €44 / €55.40 / €57.50, available from www.ticketmaster.ie from Thursday November 26.  In person: Ticketmaster Outlets Nationwide and at The Olympia Theatre Box office open from 10.30am – 6.15pm Monday – Saturday.  By Phone (24 hour): ROI 0818 719 300 & Northern Ireland 0844 847 24 55
